This deftly molded solid terra-cotta figure stands 5 1/2" in height by 5" in width. He is the Maya wind god from Northern Mexico and dates Ca. 400 - 860 A.D. He is adorned with a massive head piece in the form of a large raptor perched atop his head and held in place by a circular belt. The lower area of the head piece is made up of a wide horseshoe shaped band with two circular decorations. He is wearing a simple square loin cloth to cover his lower body. The piece has numerous dendrites attesting to his great antiquity. One of those compact ancient pieces with great charm and presence. Ex: Scottsdale Arizona Gallery.
